While the October release of the third alternative knitwear and related garments featured a rich burgundy, this latest collection features a bold neon color palette.
Overall, the clothing collection may be impeccable, expensive in its composition and too daring for many, but it will find many fans and cannot be ignored. A bit like the PSG itself.

The new fourth series presents the eye-catching tubes that the manufacturer calls “Hyper Pink” and “Mental Purple.” These colors are as vivid as their name and are accentuated by the spray paint effect in the design of the room.
The shirt has an elegant Jordan neckline that combines a V-neck and a round neck in a flowing design. It is black and matches the jagged “broken seam” that runs along the sides and cuffs.
There is also a subtle nod to the classic basketball of yesteryear with faint traces of the elephant skin print created for the Air Jordan III. The shoe made its debut during Michael Jordan’s outstanding NBA season in 1987-88, when he won the first of five MVP awards in the league and was also named Defensive Player of the Year. He was the first to wear the now iconic “Jumpman” logo in his silhouette.
Fans have already praised the collection, as Boston Celtics star Jason Tatum arrived Wednesday for the NBA game against the San Antonio Spurs and wore a few pieces from the line.
Modeled by PSG stars Marquinhos, Grace Geyoro, Marie-Antoinette Katoto and Mbappe, the set includes a premium top, shorts, socks, drill and matching pants.
Each has a new “Paris” design that the manufacturer says was directly inspired by the interstellar font of space shuttles.
To ensure that PSG fans and sneaker lovers get their money’s worth from head to toe, the PSG x Jordan 2021 capsule includes a brand new pair of limited edition shoes designed specifically for the reigning Ligue 1 champions.
The new Air Jordan 1 Zoom Comfort PSG also has a touch of iridescent pink and purple. It has both the Parisian “Jumpman” logo on the heel and the “Wings” logo used on the original Air Jordan I and II on the roof.
The soles feature the PSG club motto “Ici C’est Paris,” but the coup de grâce is a cut-out Nike swoosh that lights up with rainbow rays when reflected by light.
Considering that this latest PSG x Jordan collaboration is the most attractive and interesting one, one wonders where they will go next? Let’s hope we don’t have to wait too long to find out.
